OK!: We're so sad to see you go! Is there a song you wish you had gotten time to sing on the show?

Vedo: Maybe a Stevie Wonder song. Stevie Wonder is a big influence. My all time favorite old school singer. I really wish I had gotten to sing maybe  "Knocks me off My Feet," "Superstitious," something like that.

OK!: And so now that you’re a TV star...ha, you’re getting awkward! Is it weird that youre a TV star?

Vedo: Nah it isn’t awkward. I've already wanted to carry that title but now I can because I've been on national television. But I'm not a celebrity. Just a few more people who my name and heard me sing.  A celebrity is Usher. I really try to inspire people love music, I love dance, I love R&B. I like to make all types of music from dance music to love making music, but ultimately I want to inspire someone with all types of music that I put out, whether it be whatever.

OK!: Any other celebrities you want to meet other than Usher?

Vedo: I would like to meet Justin Bieber. I really wanna see what type of person he is. He's always under wraps so much, you never really get to know who Justin is. You only speculate. I would also like to meet Chris Brown, I want to see what type of person he is. Again, we see what goes on with him but I’d like to see what type of person he is at heart.

OK!: Who’s your musical man crush?

Vedo: (Laughs). When you say man crush…like…define man crush.

OK!: It could be you think they’re talented or they’re good looking…

Vedo: I would say Chris Brown. I think he's like, super talented. He displays a mixture of athleticism, vocals, emotion, all in one. That’s hard to do. Usher will tell you. It's really not easy to sing and dance at the same time. Before Michael Jackson passed I think Usher and Chris Brown are the ones that really are doing it. And I want to be that way too.

OK!: What’s the weirdest thing about you that your fans don’t know yet?

Vedo:The weirdest thing about me, is uh…. Um….wait. People don’t know about me. I love to eat bread. And that’s it. Like, I would take a bunch of bread and like eat it.

OK!: And that’ll be your dinner?

Vedo: That’ll be my dinner, like a bunch of bread and water. Jelly sandwiches, no peanut butter.  I’m allergic to peanuts. And I grew up doing that so that’s what I do.

OK!: What’s the most embarrassing song on your iPod?

Vedo: On my iPod. Uh. Let me see.

OK!: There’s gotta be some, like, One Direction on there…

Vedo: You know what, it's "Little Things" by One Direction. I actually did a cover to "Little Things" too and I think that’s probably the most embarrassing song. It's like 'Oh, Vedo you’re a little sap.' You’re a sensitive person. But I think that’s probably the most embarrassing song on my iPod.

OK!: No Bieber?

Vedo: I got some bieber on there but I don’t think that’s embarrassing. Hes got some cool music.

Photos: See Justin Bieber's New Ad Campaign!

OK!: So now just get Usher to hook you up with Bieber and you're all set.

Vedo: Actually, yeah! Scooter Braun just followed me on Twitter.

OK!: OMG, that’s my dream in my life. To get Scooter Braun to notice me on Twitter.

Vedo: Yeah, he follows me, so that’s pretty cool, man. I just found out that he follows me today. So that was pretty cool.
